An­gle­sey

En­joy some won­der­ful Welsh roads and views

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

An­gle­sey is gen­er­ally some­where that peo­ple ride through as fast and in as straight a line as pos­si­ble, in or­der to catch a ferry to Ireland from Holy­head. And that’s a shame, as the is­land has some great rid­ing to of­fer. Af­ter cross­ing the Me­nai Bridge, turn off the A55 and take the A5025, a road that hugs the coast all around the isle.

Small and twisty, this isn’t one to ride fast – in­stead it is one to cruise along, en­joy the glo­ri­ous views and even in­dulge in a bit of grey seal spot­ting. These beau­ties are quite com­mon in the waters around An­gle­sey and can of­ten be seen sun­bathing on the rocks. Af­ter cross­ing the A55 at Holy­head, avoid the ma­jor road again and in­stead take the A4080 that mir­rors the A5025 but in­stead shad­ows the south coast.

An­gle­sey cir­cuit is tucked away just off this road and no trip to this area is com­plete with­out a quick stop at the track to see what is hap­pen­ing. Failing that, you could al­ways pop to the model vil­lage, farm park or sea zoo. There are a large num­ber of camp­sites on An­gle­sey so you could eas­ily have one day ex­plor­ing the is­land and the other thrash­ing you bike around the track. Sounds like a per­fect week­end away, doesn’t it?

These guys are all off to An­gle­sey’s sea zoo, spot­ting sun­bathing seals on the way
